Hi,

First of all, as you know Pardus 2009.1 comes with hybride ISO. This means that you don't have to burn a CD. As well as you can install from CD, you can install from USB pen drive easily.

To use USB pen drive, Just use dd command.

First get the device name:

Code:
guDa@baDibere ~ $ ls -la /dev/disk/by-id/usb-*
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root  9 Oca  9 14:07 /dev/disk/by-id/usb-USB_2.0_Flash_Disk_211452018D114A00-0:0 -> ../../sdb
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 10 Oca  9 14:07 /dev/disk/by-id/usb-USB_2.0_Flash_Disk_211452018D114A00-0:0-part1 -> ../../sdb1

Here, our device is "sdb" not sdb1

Then, use dd command

Code:
dd if=Pardus_2009.1_Anthropoides_virgo.iso of=/dev/sdb bs=4M

That's all. Your usb pen drive's boot flag must be enabled and just boot.

Windows users can use dd command by downloading it from http://www.chrysocome.net/downloads/dd-0.5.zip

Then, in command line (msdos), go to dd.exe's directory and give the following command:

Code:
dd --list

After the command, you will see an output contains a word like that : "Mounted on \\.\F:"

Here, our device is \\.\F:

Then use a command like following :

Code:
dd if="C:\Pardus\Pardus_2009.1_Anthropoides_virgo.iso" of=\\.\f: bs=4M

I've not tried this on Windows, because I don't have it. But it must work.



Second nice feature is "copytoram":

By adding "copytoram" parameter in Pardus boot menu of CD, contents of installation and live cd are copied into ram and Pardus is installed/worked faster. At least 1.5GB ram memory is required.

Thanks for this manual
And here is my very short manual with respect to
Quote
* Installation Image (Multilanguage without Turkish)
  Pardus_2009.1_Anthropoides_virgo_International.iso

Check for iso file:
Quote
atolboo@asrock-pardus Downloads $ ls
Pardus_2009.1_Anthropoides_virgo_International.iso

Insert USB device and get device name:
Quote
atolboo@asrock-pardus Downloads $ ls -la /dev/disk/by-id/usb-*
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 9 jan 17 12:51 /dev/disk/by-id/usb-USB_2.0_Flash_Disk_00e0dda2117692-0:0 -> ../../sdb

Write image:
Quote
atolboo@asrock-pardus Downloads $ dd if=Pardus_2009.1_Anthropoides_virgo_International.iso of=/dev/sdb bs=4M
171+1 records gelezen
171+1 records geschreven
718274560 bytes (718 MB) gekopieerd, 434,334 s, 1,7 MB/s

That's all and the device is ready.

And to check (after momentarily removing and inserting the device again):
Quote
atolboo@asrock-pardus Downloads $ ls -la /dev/disk/by-id/usb-*
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root  9 jan 17 13:01 /dev/disk/by-id/usb-USB_2.0_Flash_Disk_00e0dda2117692-0:0 -> ../../sdb
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 10 jan 17 13:01 /dev/disk/by-id/usb-USB_2.0_Flash_Disk_00e0dda2117692-0:0-part1 -> ../../sdb1

By the way, don't forget to verify your ISO is valid Cheesy md5sum, sha1sum etc Wink

And use the "Check CD Integrity" button (after the License screen)

dd under Windows works fine.

When using dd under Windows, you will need to put "" around the path if you have spaces in the path of the iso. For example if you downloaded the Pardus iso to

C:\Documents and Settings\User\My Documents\Downloads\Pardus_2009.1_Anthropoides_virgo.iso

Your dd command will be
dd if="C:\Documents and Settings\User\My Documents\Downloads\Pardus_2009.1_Anthropoides_virgo.iso" of=\\.\u: bs=4M
